    I love the shirt dress. Does it run true to size?

  2. That striped dress just makes me gush. I know you linked a similar but who is that one by?

    You are absolutely beautiful ( and classy) even in your swimwear!
    Thank you!!

    Hi Beth, you look lovely. Could you please share where you got the white dress and green shoes? Love both. Thanks!

  5. Karyn Bray says:

    Always enjoy your posts….did notice the nice handbag in the photo with the red dress….; )

  6. GL Gardener says:

    Love all your choices. Beautiful and colorful. After one of your posts on white jeans I purchased a pair from Talbot’s petites. Now I have many choices. I love summer dresses and as you said one and done. They are actually cooler than a top and pants. I love shoes and like to see your choices. Great work!
    Thanks so much.

    Love all of the looks on this post. U look fantastic in jumpsuits!

    I’m only 4’11”. I’m kinda shy with wearing these but I do have a black one that is still waiting on me that take to make alterations lady. Everything is always too long.


  8. Linda says:

    love your website!

    Black jumpsuit with gold belt, hands down! You look terrific in al the looks but that is my favorite!

  11. Francesca B. says:

    Thank you Beth for your wonderful post. I get so many new ideas and it is so much fun! I love the LBD you posted from Ann Taylor and managed to snag one in the sale, and yesterday I bought a super belt to go with it to match my bronze shoes…something I would have never have done without reading your posts.( In the past I would have just used the boring black belt the dress came with).
    So I am learning! Thank you:)
    Have a gorgeous day!

  12. Mary says:

    I love the black shirtdress and the black and animal print sandals shown with the dress. Fantastic outfit. Can you share brands please?

  13. Suzi says:

    In my day, I had several jumpsuits and I loved them, now as a much “older” woman, I find that sometimes I can’t get them undone fast enough! Sorry, but it is what it is–
    Love the ones you showed and makes me long to have one again, I love the blue striped one, but alas, old bladders can’t often wait! Enjoy as you can.

  14. Bee says:

    Beth, I really like seeing outfits styled with flat and low heeled shoes. There must be many women “of a certain age”, like myself, who do not wear higher heels! Thanks!

  15. Cathy Justice says:

    I love the black and white dresses. I don’t usually wear a dress it’s a great piece for summer.

  16. Susan says:

    Lots to love here. You look like a boss in that black jumpsuit with the gold accessories! I really love the coral (?) sling back heels with the white pants. Where did you get those? And — non sequitur here — I was trying to find new summer pajamas today. I get hot so I want sleep shorts that aren’t too short and could be worn around my daughters teenage friends or extended family when we vacation together. Any suggestions? I ordered some from Soma to start. We’ll see how that works out!

  17. Cheryl says:

    You are one positive lady !!! “We need to look up before we look forward!!”And you look so fantastic!! Such a wonderful role model- I wanna be like you when I grow up!!

  18. Suzanne Smith says:

    As always, lots of gorgeous looks. I do love a simple dress during hot summer months. It’s been cool for us this spring, but I heard the other day that we’re supposedly in for a hot summer to break records. Ugh. So I’ll definitely be wearing light clothes and simple dresses. You look great! And your knee seems to be doing very well. I hardly notice mine at all now, other than to be thrilled they’re done. I commend you all for the creative posts during this insanity, and with your knee healing as well. Take good care.

  19. Nancy A Reed says:

    Great outfits that leave me inspired for summer. You look terrific

    I love the look of jumpsuits. Years ago I had a beautiful black jumpsuit. During our stay at home time I have rethought my wardrobe, and I wanted to add some items for summer that were casual, but not the typical tees and shorts, etc. I wasn’t sure about fit so I wanted to order a jumpsuit in a lower price point in case it didn’t work out, and it was going to be too hard to return. I browsed the Old Navy site, and I ended up buying a navy blue jumpsuit with a tiny white print – for $17!!! It is adorable!! I also purchased some looser fitting lightweight floral pants – how cute. Even though we are spending 99% of our time at home I still want to look put together. I would say if in doubt about a jumpsuit try to find one that is reasonably priced and try it. Now I am searching for just the right pair of sandals.
